The New European Library: A Discovery Service

Collections exposed. A way to promote the collections available at specialized libraries is to aggregate them into the flow of a central provider. These days we can see an example of this strategy with the launch of the new European Library, a result of an innovative partnership between the Conference of European National Librarians (CENL) and three other leading library organisations: LIBER, CERL and the Europeana Foundation.

48 National Libraries have an agreement to expose part of their holdings (rare books, images or manuscripts) through a single point of access. The goal is that research communities can have access to metadata or full-text documents related to cultural heritage.
